The major challenges facing humanity are global in nature – climate change, pandemics, ever decreasing biodiversity, lack of usable fresh water and food security to name a few. Without a world that is basically peaceful, we will never get the levels of trust, cooperation and inclusiveness needed to solve these issues – yet, what creates peace is poorly understood.
In his ground-breaking new book, Peace in the Age of Chaos: The Best Solution for a Sustainable Future, Steve Killelea, founder of both the Global Peace Index and the world-renowned think tank, the Institute for Economics and Peace (IEP), shares his personal journey to measure and understand peace – a peace that is a positive, achievable and tangible measure of human wellbeing and progress.
Join Liz Hume, Acting President and CEO at the Alliance for Peacebuilding, and Richard Ponzio, Director and Senior Fellow at Stimson, in conversation with Steve about his new book; why he believes peace is a prerequisite for survival of society as we know it in the 21st century; and how Positive Peace provides an exciting new approach to solving some of the most intractable problems of our time.
